HOW TO LIVE YOUR PAST

Before i go fully into the topic before me... I'll like to start with this piece of quote as usual:

"Past when not properly managed/lived pulls the future in part".

For  a clearer view of today's topic, i will be using a story in the scripture with references to each verses as i am led.


I Samuel 12.
David miserably failed as a husband and friend when he impregnated the wife of Uriah one of his choice mighty men. After sending the husband to the front line of a  battle where he was slain, David married the woman, attempting to cover up his adulterous affair (v9).


Nugget 1: when you fail to manage/live the past, you continue covering error with errors.
Eventually the Prophet Nathan pronounced a death sentence and some pay backs upon the household of David, calling it 'sword' (v10-12).
Thus, Stop covering that error anymore. Stop covering lies with lies.


Nugget 2: To every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. 
Every action of ours are seeds sown that must yield fruits. The truth is friends we'll reap what we have sown into our times called past. so live NOW wisely!!
David acknowledged his sins before God in the presence of Nathan and his death sentence was lifted.
You too can lift that burden off you. You can lift off the punishment of you past actions - if only you will change your ways.


Nugget 3: David could keep it a secret and die, but he spoke it out before the prophet.
You see that?
I have told you earlier; Your secrets are revelations of how not to do it again. Take a stand today - let him show you His covenant. Davis saw His covenant because He told the Prophet the secret.This is a dimension  of  'The covenant of Life'... praise God!!

Proverbs 28:13King James Version (KJV)
13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Acknowledging the past will not take the 'pay-back', it won't because life is a process. The child died!! David spent seven days fasting on his face in the dust in intercession before God, hoping God would reverse the decision and bring life to the infant. At the conclusion of the week, David was informed the child had died.

Permit me ask this; what would have been your reaction after spending about 168 hours alone with God with just one petition on your mind and everything failed still pointing at that error i mean referring you to the past still just like David? (verse12-19).

Nugget 4: We live the past. Either we like it or not we pay for our ordeals. It's a process we must endure to enjoy. 
Instead of blaming God, cursing Him for not being good, and questioning how God could take an infant when it was the sin of its father and not the sin of the child that angered the lord, David's reaction surprised even his closest friends. He arose from the dust, washed himself and went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. (verses20-21)

Nugget 5: Learn not to dwell on the past. Your struggles and efforts cannot change the past nor make it any better only God can! In the process of newness, let the Lord take whatever He wants to take away, let Him kill within you/ empty you of all HE needs to do. Do remember when it doesnt happen your own ways God has your best interest at heart. "I wish above all things that thou prospereth............." IIIJohn1:2 KJV.

For brevity.... laughing out Loud' verse 24 said " and David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went in unto her; and she bare a son, and he called his name Solomon; and the Lord loved him."
David managed his past(verses22-23) and he avoided bis future in part! 

When you comfort yourself and follow the due process of healing, you have a Solomon for every dead child.

My prayers and wish is that after you read through this, you will be graced to birth a Solomon out of your past.

Enjoy!!

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…
